XFree 4 formats manpages into HTML per default, using rman. This leads to
problems in pkgsrc because the PLIST is different fur XF3 and XF4. Does
any XF4 enclued being know
 * if it's possible to keep XF4 from converting manpages to HTML
   (which is, I think, the best thing, given that manpages can be
   viewed the traditional way, and that we don't ship a html viewer)
 * how to approach the problem otherwise.
